To improve data throughput of the Belle II data
acquisition we are upgrading the CPU-based COPPER system
with a PCIe40 board carrying Arria 10 FPGA. Since one of
the main functionality of the new system is event building in
FPGA, the read-out system must be synchronized with the front-
end electronics. This task is performed by the bidirectional
trigger timing distribution system. During system commissioning
we prepared several versions of the interface to this system. In
the initial version of the interface we ported the code from Xilinx
FPGAs to Arria 10. This revision also introduces monitoring of
the status for multiple channels and a ring buffer to distribute
trigger information to all channels in parallel. To improve
stability under external noise, we implemented a clock-data
recovery using an independent on-board oscillator as a reference
clock in the next revision of the interface. We are also developing
a version utilizing high-speed serial transceiver to replace CAT-
7 RJ45 cables with optical fibers. The system commissioning
has started in 2021 with few detectors and will be complete
after the long shutdown 1 of SuperKEKB in 2023. In this paper,
we will present the architectures of the interface to the trigger
timing system implemented in the PCIe40 board and the system
performance in the experiment.
